Only 3 kilometres along the coast from Trial Bay gaol is the charming little seaside town of South West Rocks. Our friends put it as a “must see” and recommended we definitely should visit it.
After the walk to the lighthouse and being immersed in gaol life all morning the time had flown round to 3-30pm, coffee time. First priority was to find some where open. A local bakery is always a good choice. We made it just as they were closing but they made a good coffee and we chose one of their home-made meat pies to sustain us.
I think we must’ve been all “photo’d” out. Do you ever get like that? As walking around the small shopping area we just looked and didn’t take any photos. Then I spotted some windows and had to snap them. So here are a few window photos.
I rather like this colour combination.
Then we walked round the corner and down to the beach. This apartment block was all windows.
When we turned round it was just WOW what a view they have.
With views like this my photography mojo was turned back on.
I tried to catch that magical effect of the sun sparkling like diamonds on the ocean. I vaguely remember reading some where that there is a special expression used to describe this and it has a calming effect on the mind. Can any one out there tell me what it is?
It was a beautiful moment watching the swimmers enjoying the ocean.
So ends another interesting day, not many more days before we will be heading home to the Goldcoast.
G’day Dawn. I’m sneaking in a second post about windows this week.

I have said that I will never live in a flat again, but if I had a view like this one I might change my mind. I have heard of sun sparkling on water as sun glitter, and that you need to be careful looking at it, but don’t know anything about it calming the mind. I believe that just being near water has that effect. A sense of well-being. Have a good weekend PP and Jack.
